Is Our Reliance on Technology Creating a New Dark Age? "As stated in his book, New Dark Age: Technology and the End of the Future, “The abundance of information and the plurality of worldviews now accessible to us through the internet are not producing a coherent consensus reality, but one riven by fundamentalist insistence on simplistic narratives, conspiracy theories, and post-factual politics.”"

Basically, we rely too much on automation, and many have no concept of actual research, or care to learn things such as fact checking. My own personal beliefs are that with any solarflare, emp, or pole reversal, which are all three major global concerns, we'd be knocked so far back into the stone age, we'd be re-creating religious genesis.
